American culture tends to be afraid of death and grief, but Judaism brings thousands of years of wisdom to help us out. Join Cantor Kate for afternoon tea and a discussion of Jewish practices around the end of life and beyond. What are the rituals and traditions that Judaism can offer us when we are dying? What is an ethical will? How does Jewish practice support mourners in the days, weeks, months and years after a loss? What are Jewish ideas about an afterlife?

This class will be structured but informal. Bring your questions, both practical and spiritual. We’ll share from our own experiences, learn about Judaism’s widely envied traditions and how they can be useful (or not), and enjoy some tea or coffee and a few sweets.
